Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a great overall rating, this nursing home fared even better in the area of inspections which is based on the facility's recent inspections. We awarded it an A+ for this area, which is one of our best scores. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's above average category grades came in the category of long-term care. We awarded them one of our stronger grades in that area, with a grade of B+. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we assessed the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.73545 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we graded is short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a solid grade of B-. In the area of short-term care, we seek to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Moving on to our last category, this nursing home was given a respectable nursing grade of B-. In computing a facility's nursing rating, we look at the quantity of hours nurses are caring for patients and the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, although this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this subcategory.
